At Sigasi, we had a similar enquiry two years ago. Solaris and HPUX got nearly no votes. The Windows/Linux balance was about the same as we see in this poll. But to our great surprise, there were over 10% Mac users!
I have to add that the question was somewhere along the lines of: "What would be your favorite platform." Of couse nobody uses a Mac-only flow today because there are far to few tools ported to Mac.
When Windows eat up all your system memory for its own graphics then how can you still use for FPGA.
And i never saw 64 bit stable windows where i can run memory intense and high end FPGA implementations.
check the comparisons of windows to linux processings before installing /using xilinx sofftware.
I love windows to be my Platform when I am in the initial part of the design, cause it is more user friendly - I don't see any problem with that, do you?
But as the project matures have to move it to Linux (you can choose solaris), cause then it allows you to write scripts to automate the damn thing..
So Windows and Linux for me
